In recent years, I’ve heard Psychedelic tones revived under a plethora of different guises. But never have I encountered anything quite as darkly absorbing as the latest single to be released from Soupcan and the Spaceman.
The production may be lo-fi. Yet, considering that Heartbreaker resonates like they just pulled it from the deepest pungent depths of the Mississippi Delta, all will be forgiven as you ingest the raw unpolished caustic aural divination.
With some spacey cosmic Bowie vibes mixed into the viscerally ominous soundscape which should appease any fans of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Brian Jonestown Massacre, the distinction isn’t hard to find in Heartbreaker.
The instrumental progressions aren’t left to swim in a sea of reverb. Instead, the swampy Blues retain their organic winding serpentine charm. And the constant evolutions in vocal style will make sure that you’re as invested in the first verse as you were in the last.
You can check out the latest single from Soupcan and the Spaceman for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.
